COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sinister blend of roasted malts combined with Revelstoke’s Stoke Roasted Coffee yields a complex rich flavour that can only be found on the darkside.

Initial aroma when bottle first opened is chocolate followed by coffee. The pour produces a nice tan coloured head with large and small bubbles. The head dissipates within 30 seconds and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The first tastes are of coffee, malt and hay. This beer is light on the palate with little mouth feel. The finish is of dry roast coffee. Not an unpleasant beverage at all

On tap. Pours black with light white head. Aromas of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors of dry dark chocolate, light coffee and roasted malts. Simple and smooth. Nice.

RumRunner101 (879) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Black pour with a quick dissipating tan head. Aromas of cola, berries, roasted malts. Flavour is the same, dry roasted coffee finish. Light and a little thin, but decent enough flavours.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with small beige head. Simple aroma. Dry mouthfeel, too much carbonation; some flavor of roasted malt and coffee, lightly peppery; correct bitterness.
Not bad, but boring.

mcberko (9325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out dark roasted espresso beans. Flavour brings out intensely dark roasted espresso, with a lingering bitterness from the roast. Not the most complex coffee stout, but I do enjoy coffee and I like this marriage. Good stout, albeit simple.

CapFlu (4778) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a lasting brown creamy head atop an opaque body. Nose and flavour of sweet coffee. Very straightforward stout yet not offensive...bizarre it has such low ratings by style.

cmacklin (417) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head. Strong aroma of coffee with hints of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Flavour is dominated by coffee with light, sweeter notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt and a bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft almost flat carbonation.

cards04 (2341) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Decent coffee stout. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of coffee and cream. Thin palate. Nice coffee flavors... But it finishes thin and watery. This is mostly all coffee... But I wish it were a bit richer and full flavored.

markschiedon (360) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Drinking from a 650ml bottle. A fresh aroma, coffee. The beer is clear,dark brown with a medium brown head. Chocolate and coffee in the taste. Medium carbonated.

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Dark brown, no head, aroma hints at an inky, coffeeish beer. The beer is fairly light, with a lot of coffee. Malt base is simple and sweet, touch burnt and a touch of chocolate. Good, but comes across as being really basic.
